Haitien Marries a Virginia White Girl Baltimore, Md„ Oct. 1.—Mary land’s law against the marrying of persons of Negro and Caucasian de scent evidently does not apply to for eigners. This is evidenced by the fact that Maurice Menos, son of Solon Menos, the Haitien minister to the United States, was married in Balti more to Miss Lillian Burgess, of Cul pepper, Va.. but recently attending a business college in Washington, where she met young Menos. Menos is 26 years old, and is secre tary of the Haitien legation, going to Washington a year ago from Paris, where he held a minor post. The marriage was performed Fri day, September 17, by the Itev. J. M. Wallace, pastor of the Aisquith Street Presbyterian chufcli, an influential white minister. Mrs. Apted, an aunt, and Mrs. Joseph Janis, a sister, ac companied Miss Burgess from Wash ington to Baltimore and witnessed the ceremony. Luncheon was bad at the Belvedere, the leading hotel in the exclusive residential district, after which young Menos and his bride left for New York. The Haitien minister was not aware of his son's intention, and had not heard of the ceremony until ques tioned by reporters. ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY ' FOR SENATORIAL TOGA (Continued from first page.) degree and a short while ago con ferred upon him the degree of doctor of laws. While at Knox, one of his fellow students, who was also work ing his way through, was R. W. Free man, the oldest colored letter carrier on the Omaha force. Subsequently Mr. Kennedy graduated from the state university of Iowa with the de gree of bachelor of law. He came at once to Omaha. That was in 1882, thirty-three years ago. He had the usual trials of the average young law yer. Pluck, path nee and persistence won. Nine years ago he represented the Second Nebraska district for two years in congress. Mr. Hitchcock, whom he expects to defeat in the next senatorial election, defeated him for congress. He' was chairman of the republican state committee in 1911 and served as a member of the board of fire and police commissioners of Omaha for a number of years. Mr. Kennedy is a member of the Presby terian church and a trustee of Belle vue college. Early in July Mr. Kennedy, than whom there is no better qualified man in the state, announced his candi dacy for the senatorial toga. The nominations are to be made at the primaries in the spring. The election follows in the autumn. Nebraska elects her senators by the direct vote of the people. At the primaries and at the subsequent elections of Novem ber, the colored voters—who in na tional politics are republican—will undoubtedly support, almost unani mously, the man whom they believe from his fair-mindedness and love of justice for all men, will do all in his power to insure to them, so far as legislation can effect it, not special privileges, but that equality of oppor tunity and all civic rights and privi leges, untrammelled by repressive and discriminatory laws, to which they are justly entitled as American citizens. That man is the Hon. John Lauderdale Kennedy. The Business World Business Enterprises Conducted by Colored People—Help Them to Grow by Your Patronage. Patton Hotel and Cafe N. P.
